WHAT IS A GREEN HOME?
A Green home is a high performance, environmentally sustainable home that is built to protect and maximize resources such as energy, water, materials and land. A Green home is healthy for its occupants and the environment. Green homes have many features that make them more durable, more environmentally friendly and more efficient. Often, people will refer to “shades of Green,” which is a method of classifying different levels of resource efficiency in a home. Homes with a few Green measures are called “light Green,” whereas homes with many Green measures are referred to as “dark Green.”


WHAT IS LEED FOR HOMES?
LEED for Homes is a national brand that consumers can look for to readily identify true green homes. It is a program created and promoted by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), which is the nation’s foremost coalition of leaders from across the building industry working to promote buildings that are environmentally responsible, profitable, and healthy places to live and work. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and environmental Design) Green Building Rating System« is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings.

All LEED Homes are third-party inspected, performance tested, and certified to be higher-performing than conventional homes. LEED for Homes is designed to provide national consistency in defining the features of a Green home and to enable builders anywhere in the country to obtain a Green rating on their homes. This program provides a complete framework for homebuilders, homeowners and local governments for building environmentally sound, healthy and resource-efficient homes. LEED emphasizes state-of-the-art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
